Roof Rack For 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan With Raised Side Rails For Carrying Kayaks


Hello, I’m looking for a way to transport 3 kayaks on top of my 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan, it has roof rails. Was wondering if this would be able to attach to the top of my car? MPG568

We can get your 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan set up to carry three kayaks, but the part you mentioned is a specific fit for a Malone trailer and won't fit your Tiguan. Instead, since your Tiguan has raised side rails, what you will need to is add a roof rack and then a kayak carrier. Having those raised side rails is really nice since you will only need a couple of parts to add a roof rack, which are the following:

- Inno Aero Crossbars # INXB130-138

- Inno Through Feet for Aero Crossbars # INXS150

That's all you will need in order to add a quiet, durable roof rack to your 2019 Tiguan, and the only other thing you will need is a kayak carrier. Since you are carrying mulitiple kayaks you will want a post-style carrier, with the best option coming from Rhino-Rack:

- Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # RRS520

This carrier comes with tie-downs for two kayaks so the only other thing you will need is the etrailer Kayak Tie-Down Kit # e36ZR.

With those parts you will be completely set to carry a trio of kayaks on the roof of your 2019 VW Tiguan. I have added links below to some video reviews for you to check out as well if you'd like to take a look.
